Hi Linda & Bob,
I’m glad you posted this on a new thread…. It helps when you can put your finger on something…and see it. The visual in this posting.... is very clear.
Knowing someone whose using pads more rapidly than others will be a comfort too! Other postings show that only ½ the package was used… or only 3 or 4 pads were used. So ~ hearing your journey will definitely let others know!!! There’s a wide range and nothings a bad range… just different healing times and different choices along the way.
And I’m with you 100% on seeing that “LIGHT”… The sun always shines even on the darkest of days…… it is there!!!
"We" can help to clear some of those clouds away by postings like this.
I personally feel the liquid intake is a big part of the puzzle here. I hear some say they still drink coffee. Caffeine is a powerful pharmacological agent that increases the frequency and urgency with which you need to urinate. This is not a bad or negative… It’s a personal choice to continue regular use or curb until an acceptable amount of urinary control is achieved. Each person has to make that choice and know the outcomes for that choice will vary.
Take care and remember… bringing an important issue to the forefront is good!!!
In Friendship, Lee & Buddy
